Looks fun for scootin' around the narrow streets of many European cities.


I didn't think anyone would notice, I do try to post freaky stuff.
I've just recently went from a 650cc bike to a 300cc scoot, but I still
love classic, round headlight bikes..

The thing posted above is a 4 speed Sachs Madass bike, 60mph beast,
and stoopid fuel consumption! Under $3k new here.

I might as well keep it up..

Here's one that I'm currently being offered as a trade for my Agility 125,
it's a 100cc 2 stroke 9hp scoot, 10" fat offroad tires, and just 185lbs!



I wouldn't mind that thing at all!

Yeah, that looks cool too!

Like I alluded to earlier, neither of these bikes would suit my needs or the way I ride at all, but I could see, given the right location and lifestyle, that I could get into these things.

It's in Mississippi, I'm on a rig in Saudi, and there are two different forum related rallies going on in the NC/TN mountains right now that I belong to.

I'm afflicted with the sickness. Ive always wanted a Guzzi V7 since Ive seen one a few years ago. A few weeks ago I wanted a Ducati Hypersport. Last week it was an Aprilia Shiver. This week I want my wife to get off her FXDXT for a new HD Switchback.

I've been dreaming about Gold Wings, the elite of touring motorcycles.

My '99 Buell cyclone that I had for 11 years was by far the easiest bike I have ever owned. I had a few warranty issues early on, but then it was rock solid. No worries there.

Actually this one


But it's very expensive so I'm thinking in a trials bike with a saddle and a bigger gas tank

Got the itch for something "new" a few months ago and decided, "what the hell, life is short, and I haven't bought a bike for myself in years". Didn't want to spend a huge sum, but still wanted something that stirred me in some way....

NEVER had any love for Harleys in general, but there is just something about the S1 and that big chunk of engine wedged into that little chassis. It just screams old school hot rod to me. Just raw and elemental. Loved them the first time I ever laid eyes on one way back in the mid 90's... always said, back then, that I'd like to try one for a bit, but just never did. Was a one bike dude back then and couldn't bring myself to take the risk... Flash forward a few years and I have other bikes in the garage that I can ride if this one needs attention... have the GS for comfort, two-up, luggage, long trips, camping, etc. Just looking for a short ride "fun" bike.

In the process of purchasing this one right now! Can't wait to go pick it up!

Wish me luck!


Agreed. The purest motorcycle. Ever.
